NORTHUMBERLAND— Duke Street at the intersection with Water Street in Northumberland is now open. It was closed this morning due to a natural gas leak. Northumberland County Communications told WKOK a contactor hit a gas line causing a leak in the area between Front and Second Streets, Traffic is also flowing as normal through that part of Northumberland.

There is also a power outage in the borough that has knocked lights out at the intersection of Duke and King Streets and Duke and Water Streets. As of 1 p.m. only six PPL customers are without power in Northumberland—at the peak of the outage the number was more than 700. At Northumberland’s two traffic lights, fire police helped direct traffic during the power outage.  (Sarah Benek)
